Kim has served in Child and Family Welfare since 1998 working with diverse families in our community that struggle with child abuse, neglect, and substance use issues.

Additionally, Kim had the opportunity to offer counseling services to students and their families, administration and faculty in a Tucson school community.

This program gained recognition and support from recent U.S. House of Representative, Ron Barber.
